: another pending addition to the obama administration is senator chuck hagel, who was been nominated to be the secretary of defense. if he becomes the secretary of defense, what is his involvement in the sequestration process going to be? guest: he will be in general in making these cuts happen. he is a veteran and a former member of the senate armed services committee. he knows the military. one of the reasons he was brought into this is because he knows how to cut. he knows what works and what does not. at least that is what the administration thinks. he will be an effective person, and leaves the white house hopes, in making these cuts take place. host: we are talking with ray locker, the national security editor at the newspaper, usa today. our next call comes from st. louis on our line for republicans. go ahead, greg. caller: even though the sequestered takes place, instead of spending 40 cents of every dollar, we would only be spending 38 cents out of every dollar. i did not know if it makes a difference. i think we need sequestration. thanks. guest: one of the things that many
, without due process. but now, the obama administration is using that same authorizeation, that same justification to -- the same authorization, rather, to justify the use of drones. the aclu among others, has raised questions about this. chamcy is the spokesperson for the aclu. >> essentially claimed that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner in cle declaring american citizens and targeting them for killing far from any battlefield >> bill: so that is the problem. i mean, it seems to me that we are really saying yeah, the president can be -- well put, judge, jury and executioner. due process? there is no more. due process is out the window. there is no need to prove in a court of law, no judge is involved here at all. no jury is involved here at all. that person is guilty. this high-level informed high-level official of the united states decides that that person is guilty and we just send a drone in to whack 'em. i don't know about you. this is scary stuff. this will raises a lot of serious questions. i think we have got to be as
offer any answers. is america a safer place or in more peril under the obama administration? are we safer or in more peril? >> it's an interesting question. if you are into the drone program, you are happy about killing terrorists. but i am concerned about lost opportunities, in terms of being able to get intelligence to gather informs and to be able to make a bigger impact overall. but it hasn't become, you know, expedient enough to try to put people behind bars and take unfunded liabilities. >> what are you going to do? invade tunisia to get these people? >> i didn't say that. >> no, maybe. how about leaning on tunisia? >> how about leaning on tunisia? what he said was right, that's the law of tunisia, we cannot go in there and take this guy out when they are following the laws of the country he lives in. i don't know what you expect. you want -- i don't know if we have enough soldiers to take over tunisia? >> no one's saying to take over tunisia. but you can exert diplomatic pressure to turn him over. there are other ways to do that. >> i am sure they have done that. >> be creati
could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn
administration more generally -- obama administration more generally. for the past four years the executive branch has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the danger posed by those who practice holy war or jihad against our country. the administration has also sought to silence and in some cases punish those who have spoken the trute about this menace. -- the truth about this menace. mr. speaker, i welcome the secretary's warning, belater though it may be. however, it would have served this country and the cause of freedom far more if she would have so openly and to have led encountering it at any point during her tenure other than its conclusion. one of the most important architects of that see no jihad policy over the past four years has been john brennan, president obama's homeland security advisor and his pick to become the next director of the central intelligence agency. in may, 2010, mr. brennan publicly declared that we do not describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenant of islam, meaning to purify one's self or one's commun
us their serious concerns about the obama administration's policy on the use of drones to kill americans overseas. and here's where we start today the post office says no delivery on saturday. but first... >> this is the "full court press." >> a lot of stuff you need to know as you head out the door on this thursday. a new low for fox news. fewer people than ever before say they trust that network. politico reporting on a new public policy polling survey that finds that just 41% of americans trust fox news while 46% do not trust the network. three years ago 49% trusted it. 37% did not. the poll found that more people trusted pbs than any other network with 52%. >> bill: 46% don't trust fox. >> let me just say as someone who monitors the media and respects what journalists do -- [ laughter ] that is great news! >> bill: the public is finally waking up to the fact that fox news is not fair and balanced! >> senator mitch mcconnell is a happy kentucky basketball fan. the hill reporting the senate minority leader was visited yesterday by university of kentucky basketball coach john

the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous recentment among some here in the region who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel from yemen. >> i think they are are not right. they are not right. this is our fight. >> to pakistan. >> you are hitting the dark leadership but the byproduct of this is anger. anger among the people. the innocent people who are getting killed. you are just creating more terrorists. >> now, the man who signs off on the kill list from a basement offense in the white house, john brnan about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest that these targeted strikes against al-qaeda terrorists are, indeed, ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade, killing thousands of al-qaeda and taliban but more than 300 is civilians as well. a world away in remote villages you you can hear them like a distant muted chain saw. a dull but deadly roar. villagers describing it this way, the drones are all over my brain. i
, staunchly defending the obama administration's use of drones against americans. >> i would like to ask you about the status of the administration's efforts to institutionalize rules and procedures for the conduct of drone strikes, in particular, how you see your role as cia director in that approval process? >> the president has insisted that any actions we take will be legally grounded, will be thoroughly anchored in intelligence, will have the appropriate review process, approval process, before any action is contemplated, including those actions that might involve the use of legal force. >> the fifth amendment is pretty clear. no depreivation of life, liberty or property without due process of law. we are threatening american lives with a drone attack. >> if the executive branch makes a mistake and kills the wrong person or a group of the wrong people, how should the government acknowledge that? >> i believe we need to acknowledge it. i believe we need to acknowledge it to our foreign partners. we need to acknowledge it publicly. >> i have been on this committee more than 10 years. with
years of president obama's administration there were four times the number of targeted killings than in eight years of president bush's administration. your testimony today that the huge increase in number of lethal strikes has no connection to the change in the obama administration's detention policy? because, obviously, for capturing a terrorist we have the opportunity to interinvestigate that individual and perhaps learn about ongoing plots. if the strike is done that opportunity is lost. are you saying today, it is totally unconnected to the obama administration's shift in its detainee policy? >> i can say that there is not an occasion that we had the opportunity to capture a terrorist and we didn't and we decided to do a strike. there is no correlation in any type of the c.i.a.'s interrogation program. if you look at the last four years what happened in a number of places, such as yemen eastern areas, there was a growth of al qaeda, quite unfortunately. what we tried to do in this administration is to take every measure to protect the lives of american citizens whether it is abr

to the obama administration for the latest proposal for providing women with contraceptive coverage and they are not happy about it. let's break it down in our strategy session. joining us is cornell belcher. and cnn contributor, former bush white house speechwriter david frum. he's a contributing editor at the daily beast. the administration came up with a resolution they thought, catholic institutions, universities or hospitals and contraception benefits for women. but now not so fast. president of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops says this, among other things. it appears that the government would require all employees in our accommodated ministries to have the illicit coverage they may not opt out, nor even opt out for their children under a separate policy. the stakes are so high, we will not cease from our effort to assure that health care for all does not mean freedom for few. so what does that mean? >> well, we have to take a step back to go to the beginning of the story. this is a confrontation that vice president biden tried to warn the situation away from. aside fro
terror which has grown 700% under the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous resentment among some here in the region, who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel, from yemen -- >> i think americans they have no right. they have no right. this is our fight. >> reporter: to pakistan. >> you can keep saying, yes, you are hitting the top leadership. but the by-product of this is anger, anger among the innocent people who are getting killed. so you're just creating more terrorists. >> reporter: now the man who signs off on the kill list from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade, killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 civilians, as well. a world away in remote villages, you can hear them. like a distant muted chain saw. a du
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
